The Cancer Cell Biology Program emphasizes cancer-related basic and translational research in the following areas:

  • Cell cycle regulation and tumor suppression
  • Cell adhesion
  • Cell signaling by growth factors and receptors
  • Chromatin regulation and epigenetics
  • Angiogenesis and vascular biology

Fundamental research into these five core areas provides critical insights into cancer development and, more importantly, targets and tools for therapeutic intervention. The Program fosters integrated research that spans these inter-related themes, enhancing the capabilities of Program members through the establishment or expansion of appropriate core facilities, and promoting interactions with investigators from other UNC Lineberger basic, clinical and population science programs.
